There are a few parts there, depending on which side you're looking at this will be the passenger side. - a tie rod ( connected to an arm that crosses to the other side of the car ) or a ball joint ( connects the wheel assembly to the rest of the car . There may possibly be others, depending on what type of steering system you have, but these 2 are found on all cars.
Hope this helps!

Your car doesn't have king pins.
The tie rod end goes inboard to your steering rack. It is used to turn your wheels.
The lower ball joint is used to allow the wheel to rotate left and right to turn, and is located center of wheel, just below your wheel lugs.

1991 ford tempo front end shakes, has a loose rod that runs in to the main drive system


Sounds like the tie rod is bad. Easyest way to tell is to jack up car on that side until tire is off the ground. tie rod end will pivot from side to side,this is normal but if it moves up and down this would indicate that it is bad. If it is please replace as soon as you can for this is very dangerous. If it would come apart you would lose control of car..Now replacing it is not that hard of a job. First remove pin that runs through bolt on bottom of tie rod. Then remove nut. Now the tie rod end has splines on it that holds it into place and just trying to pull it out doesnt work. Place something like large screwdriver or pry bar between tie rod end and where in goes into assemble. Now while prying down use a hammer and hit the side of assemble where tie rod bolt goes through. may have to hit it quite hard and remember keep prying down while you do this. It will simply pop up out of assembly. Please do not hit bottom of bolt to try to pop it out for this in alot of cases will smash end of bolt and cause it to flare out making it hard to pull out once loose. Now that it is out you will need to take it loose from the arm. Use a pair of vise grips of pipe wrench to hold arm and loosen set nut behind tie rod end and screw tie rod out. replace with new one ,tighten nut,put tie rod end into hole but on nut and tighten then be sure to put pin through bolt,may have to turn nut to line it pin up with hole. When pin is through bend it out around nut. The pin is what keeps the nut from coming loose...Hey your done...Anytime you replace a tie rod end you will need to have your car realined.......please rate this post and good luck and hope the info is helpful

. Place a set of wheel chocks behind the rear wheels of the Previa. Lift the front of the automobile on the side that you are starting with. Place a jack stand under the Previa and raise it to the frame of the vehicle. Remove the wheel using the lug wrench to loosen the lug nuts.

I can't get the tie rod ends off of my 1990 Oldsmobile Regency.


grab the tie rod end very tite with vice grips. loosen clamp on tie rod near ball joint fit wrench or more vice grips on ball joint. try to turn the tie rod it would help to soak the threads awhile with w-d 40 or heat the tie rod where it screws in the bal joint with a propane or some type torch. before removing the tie rod count the number of turns it takes to get it out so when you put it back your front end will still be aligned. i believe it would be smart to knock the tie rod end loose before anything else. remove cottre pi and nut from bottom of tie rod end. you can use a tie rod separator that looks like afuning fork or just crawl under the ****** and beat the hell out of the tie rod bolt,not always easy,use heavy hammer.dont beat the bolt if you plan to reuse the tie rod end cause you'll never get a nut back on it. most rental shops have tie rod seperators auto zone loans them usually. good luck from sunny austin fx

How do you remove the tie rod from a 2000 dodge caravan


Depending on inside or outside tie-rod i'll go over both. Outside tie rod step: 1:Jack vehicle and remove tire
2:Loosen jam nut on tie rod, this is the nut directly behind the tie-rod.
3:remove cotter-pin on castle nut of tie-rod,remove nut.
4:turn the wheel completely to the extended side so that the tie rod is stretching out and you can get at it with a hammer. If doing driver-side turn wheel all the way to right.
5:Hit the nub that the tie rod is bolted to not the tie rod it will take some swinging. but you'll know when you have broken it free it will pop right out.
6:marking a spot on the shaft that the tie rod is on or leaving the existing jam nut as a marker to thread the new tie rod on. this can effect your alignment angle.
7:using a wrench or vise grip thread the tie rod off and the new one on.
8:Put new tie rod on and bolt down.
9:dont forget to install cotter pin good luck.

2000 caravan drivers side rotor wears out told tie-rod true or no


Look behind front wheel for rod that attaches to spindle/knuckle, and moves your wheel back & forth from steering rack. The tie rod (outer) is the piece attached on the end, that is threaded on that rod, and attaches to the spindle/knuckle, behind the wheel. Grab your tire and try to wiggle it hard from side to side. (hands at 3 & 9 o'clock ) Push with one hand while pulling with the other. If there is slop, or play, you have probably got a bad tie rod end, which you can observe it move by looking at where it attaches, while someone else wiggles it. Maybe this picture will help you I.D. it.498e60a.jpg

1997 ford f250 steering problem


Check the tie rod, tie rod ends, and ball joints for excessive play. Jack up the front on either side and have a helper push and pull on the top or bottom of the tire. Watch the area where the hub pivots on the axle. if both sides check out. with the truck on the ground, have the helper turn the steeribg wheel back and forth about a half turn with the key off. Look for loose outer tie rod ends, and inner tie rod ends.
F-250 4x4 steering componants are pretty basic, If your unsure what to look for then take it to someone that knows how to fix it. Correctly. If you replaced any of the joints. It would be in your best interest to get it alighned.

Car shakes through the brakes and steering


Well, just because the rotors are new doesn't mean they are nor warped, do you feel the vibration in the steering wheel or in your seat? The other thing about Intrepeds is the inner TIE ROD ENDS very common, While your there check lower ball joints and outer Tie Rod Ends, have someone look at the tie rod ends located behind the engine while someone turns the steering wheel left and right in short quick strokes if you see loosness there you have to fix that problem.
If you feel the virbration in your seat the rear rotors are your culprit also make sure whoever does the brakes to clean and service the caliper guide pins make sure they are clean and lubed with lilicone grease made for that porpous and grease all points where the pads ride on the mounts.
Please contact me if you need more help and would you please leave me a favorable rating? Thank you, Randy
